Abercrombie is up against state Sen. David Ige in the Democratic primary.
The governor, who holds a massive fundraising edge over Ige, apparently had campaign money on his mind Saturday as he flew between the Big Island, Oahu and Maui to appear at the party's county conventions.
At the Oahu convention, Abercrombie spoke critically of McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission, the April ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court that lifted the caps on what campaign donors can give in aggregate to federal candidates and political party committees.
The governor marveled about one billionaire who spent about $100 million during the last election cycle through Super PACs, and may have spent even more through interest groups that do not have to disclose donors. The governor said that individual donors may now do the same directly to an unlimited number of federal candidates and political party committees after the court ruling, which he predicted will eventually reach the state and local levels.
"So this is what's going to do it for us," Abercrombie told delegates about coming together as a party to push back against that kind of money. "The values and the priorities of the Democratic Party."
